The ship, the movie, the tour rank right there with the Alamo which is our #1 historical monument in San Antonio. You don't have to be a history buff to enjoy the journey of this ship.

An overall view and display of the Republic of Texas history. Entertainment for a day including interactive theatre at reasonable costs. Recommended time during early school schedule when not overwhelmed by students. A daily attractions near UT and state capitol. Parking fee and admission fee.

You could spend the day here if you really wanted to take it all in. I thought the way they covered history in the 1800's was particularly impressive as they mocked up the time period including the flooring. Quite rightly a lot of attention is...More
